Can't wait.

I did not see any response to your question about precision resistors 
with four connections and I must say I have no idea. I have done 
extensive work with high current shunts. I every case the outer, 
large screw connections, are the supply and load and the inner, small 
screw connections are for metering. I don't have a clue if this applies or not.

A fine is a tax for doing wrong.  A tax is a fine for doing well.

Peter Cooper, of Fermi Lab, says, "Every experimentalist knows
that the apparatus, or at least your understanding of it, is
always at fault until demonstrated otherwise." He also says,
"Nature is really unmoved by what I, or anyone else, believes."
